Australia: Nissan: Government support vital to EV success

Nissan’s global product planning chief says government support is the key to the successful introduction of electric vehicles and admits the take-up of cars like the Nissan Leaf in Australia will be hampered without any significant state or federal contribution.

Nissan global general manager of product strategy, advanced and exploratory planning Francois Bancon told journalists at the Australian launch of Nissan’s first electric car, the Leaf, that EVs could not succeed without governments buying into the technology.

“Yeah, [government support] is the key,” Bancon said. “This technology is expensive, the car is expensive.

“Where we sell the best is where the governments offer their support … which is not only the incentive for the direct purchase, but also they are investing in the infrastructure.”
